Celebrate Father's Day with Horror's Best and Worst Dads

Henry Spencer, Eraserhead
Actor: Jack Nance

It's pretty clear from the onset of Eraserhead (when most things in the surrealist flick aren't) that Henry Spencer isn't exactly pleased with his relationship or the fact that he's basically been forced into marrying his girlfriend due to her sudden pregnancy. In Henry's defense, his child is a strange, misshapen mutant creature that most certainly doesn't seem human, but that doesn't excuse his eventual cutting into the creature with a pair of scissors and basically abandoning it.

Don is one of the most useless characters in horror history. A coward through and through.

What about Jupiter from the original The Hills Have Eyes played by James Whitworth. Frightening performance. Or Pa from Wrong Turn 2 played by Ken Kirzinger. Or Sawtooth from Wrong Turn 1 and 4. Or maybe even Eric Stoltz from The Butterfly Effect. Nice list though. Some of My favorites are on there.
